Listen in as Senator Phil Gramm reveals some of his past…most you will be shocked to learn!

So many children are being swept under the rug. But Senator Gramm says this: “Never underestimate the power of an idea whose time has come.” He believes now is the time that the Texas Legislature will finally do something to help children make a real future for themselves.

Discussed by The Honorable Talmadge Heflin
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

As a household, you must prepare your monthly expenses. Whether you use a budget or not, you know how much money you have and how much you will need. Our great State is run in the same manner. In fact, the Texas Constitution states that the Legislature cannot spend more than what is estimated to be available.

The Honorable Talmadge Heflin, the Director of the Center for Fiscal Policy at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, will be discussing the next Texas Budget today. He served as chairman of the House Committee on appropriations in the 78th Session, so he definitely knows What’s UP in regards to making – and sticking to – a budget.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The Texas House and Senate have each released their versions of the next Texas Budget for 2018 and 2019. What targets must they not exceed?

Was the current leadership of the House and Senate given direction from the Governor’s and Lt. Governor’s offices last year? And if so, why?

Are the proposed budgets from the House and Senate draconian or workable in today’s economic environment?

When the MSM complains that the Republicans are “cutting funding for healthcare and education”, you can now tell them: “No they aren’t!” Share this interview on Facebook and Twitter so all your friends and followers know the truth!

Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 12:5. As Mark Lanier was writing these devotions, he couldn’t stop thinking about Scripture passages which spoke of a Christian’s duty to help the needy. He firmly believes that the blessings which God bestows on us should not be kept, but rather given away. Sometimes, however, it is hard to be generous. What should we do in those situations when we want to be selfish and look the other way?

Day 5

For the first lesson this New Year (from January 8, 2017), Mark Lanier dives right back into his series “Why I Am Not…” with part three of “Why I Am Not a Mormon”.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why is the Ark of the Covenant important? 1 Samuel 5:11

Are we all “gods”? The Mormons, using one verse from the Book of Psalms, believe so. Listen as Mark Lanier offers a fantastic explanation why they are flat wrong.

The Mormons also have a very different view of Satan. What are their thoughts about how he came to be? Furthermore, who and what are angels?

According to Mormons, who gets to go to Heaven?

Points for Home:
1. Jesus is God and we are not.
2. Trust the Bible.
3. Jesus died for everyone for a purpose.

Mark is leading his 800+ member class into a deeper understanding of God’s Word.  Join him next Sunday at Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston.

Day 5

This week’s sermon from the series “The Gospel According to Matthew” will be presented by Pastor Averri LeMalle, the teaching Pastor at Champion Forest Baptist Church. Today is the last segment in his sermon entitled “Dealing with Temptation”, with a focus on Matthew Chapter Four.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

To fight off temptation, one must be prepared. Pastor Averri LeMalle concludes his sermon today by reviewing the F.A.S.T facts and why all Christians should be well-versed in Scripture.

Meditation is another barrier between you and temptation. This is different than just knowing Scripture.

Finally, Pastor Averri reminds us that it is necessary to tell the devil to stay away! Satan cannot touch you when you proclaim Jesus Christ over your life.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
